Dear Readers:
Your long suffering reporter has gone on a diet that tries to cut out as much WHEAT as possible since this apparently helps you lose wight, lowers cholesterol, reduces diabetes, increases stamina, makes your hair soft, and your dick hard!
Now I find that there is a name for it……………. it’s called a “Gluten Free Diet!”

Gluten (from Latin gluten, “glue“) is a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grain species, including barley and rye. Gluten gives elasticity to dough, helping it rise and keep its shape and often gives the final product a chewy texture.
Gluten-free products are a $90-million enterprise in Canada alone, and the sector is expected to grow at least 10 per cent each year through to 2018—an astounding feat for what is primarily a food-based category.
As Cathy Gulli explains, manufacturers are geting the message. Kellogg’s revamped its Rice Krispies recipe, first concocted in 1927, by removing barley malt (the source of gluten in the original) from its gluten-free version so it could advertise as a cereal “that’s easy for kids to digest.” Campbell Company of Canada claims to be the “first mainstream brand” to feature a gluten-free symbol on its soups and chilies. Tim Hortons hailed the introduction of a gluten-free menu item in mid-July—a chewy coconut macaroon drizzled with milk chocolate—as nothing short of a “defining moment in our Canadian dining history.”

If you’re looking for love, show your thrifty side. It will reassure that potential mate that you’re responsible, sensible and healthy. Plus, they’ll find it sexy, new research suggests.


“If you show people the exact same picture of a person who you identify as a saver and as a spender, the saver is always seen as more sexually attractive and hot,” says Jenny Olson, a Ph.D. candidate at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan.

That’s as true for men as it is for women, according to the recent study “A Penny Saved Is a Partner Earned: The Romantic Appeal of Savers,” which Olson co-authored with Scott Rick, an associate professor of marketing at the University of Michigan. The two set out to challenge the long-held perspective that men look first for sensual stimulation in their mates while women search for men of means.

“There is no gender difference. Males and females find savers more attractive,” Olson says. Why is that? Because saving involves a lot of self control, the researchers reported. And those who can successfully pull in the reins on their spending are also more likely to be able to restrain themselves from overeating or heavy drinking, the thinking goes. And potential partners also see them as likely to have better work-out habits, a good credit score and a retirement plan.

police2Two days after an intruder was discovered prowling around Buckingham Palace, police confronted Prince Andrew, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II, in the royal residence’s garden and demanded he identify himself.

London’s Metropolitan Police said in an email Sunday that they had apologized to Andrew, also known as the Duke of York, and the royal responded with a touch of humour.

“I am grateful for their apology and look forward to a safe walk in the garden in the future,” he said in a statement.
Canada’s largest classified website is under pressure to ban the sale of household pets as part of a Montreal woman’s quest to put an end to puppy mills.
Barbara Lapointe, a mother of two who operates a dog walking business, wants Kijiji to instead promote adoption from registered animal rescue groups and individual families.

imageLapointe’s online petition, posted on the website, had collected nearly 48,000 signatures by midday Sunday.
“We want them to set the example and be the ethical leader on this,” Lapointe said in an interview.
Lapointe is also trying to get her local municipality, the Town of Mount Royal, to ban the sale of animals in pet stores.
She’s hoping it will follow the lead of other Canadian cities such as Richmond, B.C., which banned the sale of puppies in pet stores in 2011.
Lapointe said cracking down on pet stores would eliminate a major marketplace for puppy mills but even then illegal breeders would “still be able to resort to online sales.”
Meanwhile, Kijiji Canada has no plans to change its policy.

Disappointed that their children seemed to enjoy using iPhones and iPads more than playing outdoors, a couple in Guelph, Ontario, Canada has chosen to spend a year using only technology invented before 1986.

“That’s kind of when it hit me,” 26-year-old father Blair McMillan told the Toronto Sun. “Because I’m like, wow, when I was a kid, I lived outside.”
untitledAs a result, McMillan, his 27-year-old girlfriend Morgan Patey, and their two sons, Trey, 5, and Denton, 2, have spent the last five months living a lifestyle that’s a throwback to the 1980s: no mobile phones, no internet, and no computers.
When he wants to take pictures of his children, McMillan says, he does it the old-fashioned way, using a film camera and sending the snaps out to be developed. Each roll costs him around $20.
The family navigates the roads using paper maps, goes to the bank in person rather than banking online, and looks up facts using a set of print encyclopedias from the 1960s.
MP3 players and even compact discs are out. The family only listens to music on cassette tape and watches movies on a VCR, though it’s not clear whether they have limited themselves to a diet of period media. The top single in Canada for September 6, 1986 was Belinda Carlisle’s “Mad About You,” while the top-grossing films of that year were Top Gun, “Crocodile” Dundee, and Platoon, in that order.
Even visitors to the McMillan/Patey home are forced to enter their retrograde world, if only temporarily. McMillan takes their mobile phones and locks them in a box until they leave.
McMillan insists the experiment isn’t about being a Luddite. “I have nothing against technology,” he told the Waterloo Record. “It improves fuel efficiency and health care. I’m not anti-technology. I wanted to taste, and I wanted my kids to taste what it would be like without it, and to see if we could actually do it.”
The couple chose the year 1986 because that’s when McMillan and Patey were both born, and McMillan, at least, is keeping true to the era. He has grown out his mustache and hires a hair stylist to keep him coiffed in a period-authentic mullet.

Then I looked, and behold, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads.
Many of the 144,000 Syrian exiles surviving at Zaatari, a refugee city made of tents in Jordan are urging the United States to bomb Assad into the stone age, and help bring about the “APOCALYPSE!
